Greek Yogurt + Whey

  1. Greek Yogurt + Whey


    I just discovered this. I hate yogurt, largely due to the texture. A friend turned me onto greek yogurt, which i usually mix with granola. The thicker texture makes it a lot more palatable to me, and it's also packed with protein.

    1 cup greek yogurt + 1 scoop whey (any flavor)
    Stir.
    Enjoy.

    It's kind of like pudding, maybe a little thicker. It's a kick ass desert that is also really healthy (if you opt for a low-fat or fat-free greek yogurt).

    I use fat-free, and it comes out to 44g protein, 0g fat and 8g carbs


  2. ive been eating organic plain yogurt mixed w/frozen berries and a scoop of vanilla whey...i seen the "greek" stuff and always was tempted to try it..little pricey however

  3. greek yogurt is a great substitute for cottage cheese. and like u said mixed with whey its great. tastes like chocolate pudding

  4. ive started to eat my whey with plain yogurt as well, in attempt to alleviate the whey bloating.

  5. sounds like that is a good idea

  6. i keep a few of the greek yogurts that come with honey in my fridge so when i dont feel like a post workout shake ill mix the yogurt with the honey and add some whey, banana slices and oats and im g2g

  7. I do this too...VERY good with both ATW cinnamon bun and XF choc pb

  8. I was mixing my greek yogurt with BCAAs like Purple Wrath and others.

    Then eating Kroger's carbmasters with ATW...cinnamon bun was by far the best with any flavor.

  9. The Capt was always wary of the Greeks and their boy-loving ways, however does appreciate their good yoghurt.

    another use for greek yogurt..
    add a organic or natural onion soup mix to 1 cup and mix together..let sit in fridge for 2 hours..makes a awsome dip for fresh veggies

  12. I LOVE the stuff

  13. I like plain with either pb choc XF whey with some natural PB mixed in or ATW cinnamon bun with some sunflower butter mixed in. I like the veggie dip idea too

  14. great idea man, will they this tn. I eat F-a-g-e yogurt 0% w/ berries

  15. so you just put the yogurt in another bowl then put a scoop of whey in and mix and it taste good?

    That is the ticket...

  17. def. tastes like chocolate pudding to me.

  18. Greek yogurt is a great food on so many levels and adding in some WP only makes it that much better.

  19. ive been doing this with atw cinnamon bun, tastes great

  20. problem is that greek yogurt is pricier than the ordinary one

  21. Interesting... I picked up a couple cups of this stuff yesterday, they sell a Dannon brand of it at the local grocery store for $1 a cup. Got the one with strawberries on the bottom...the nutritional profile is a hell of a lot better than the regular yogurt I see all the time, I'll definitely be considering trying this mixed with some whey as a PWO.

    Good stuff.

    i dunno if it's what i've been eating but it's called cobani or something, many of the kinds are fat free or 2% fat...the fruits at the bottom usually run about 140-160 calories and 14-16g of protein...really easy to throw in my lunch for work

    my roomie eats the hell outta greek yogurt. i dunno bout the onion mix, but i think i might steal one of her yogurts and mix it with J&D bacon ranch to make a veggie dip

  24. I like to keep these on hand for snacks, but for some reason greek yogurt gives me wicked heartburn.

  25. these mixes always sound so terrible to me and then I make one... Awesome every time

  26. Greek Yogurt: $1 At Publix. I picked up a ton.

    I have really been enjoying Greek Yogurt for a short while now, and have been blown away by the flavors and varieties offered at grocery stores in response to the growing demand and popularity of this item over the years. Along with the fruit-at-the-bottom versions such as blueberry (delicious) and strawberry, and even honey... I find it much more economical to buy whatever the largest container of the yogurt I can find, typically at Wal-Mart, and do the following for an awesome taste amplifying recipe... simply dust the yogurt with cinnamon and pour one Truvia packet in, stirring well, and enjoying! Greek yogurt has a much thicker consistency and much lower carbs (about 5-6g per serving) when compared to normal yogurts (which are also almost always 'fortified' with sugars. Avoiding the blandness of Greek yogurt with one packet of Truvia, which is the specialized extract of the Rebiana leaf (instead of the crude and bitter tasting/aftertaste of simply crushing the Stevia leaf as so many other products use) is an excellent way to add some sweetness and taste satisfaction without adding any calories.

    Fresh or frozen blueberries can be added as well... since the pre-made fruit 'injected' products will only cost you more money because of convenience, so just add your own.
